What do Elizabeth W. and Tonya M. of Longmont; Kelly P., Diana S., Peter A., George C., Norm A., Zoe M., Richard D. and Richard K. of Boulder, and Jody S. of Louisville have in common? They all won $50 for giving us a piece of their mind as part of the Camera’s reader panel last year.

We rely on our reader panel to help us define and shape the content that matters most to our audience. Join the conversation, won’t you? You can be a part of our panel regardless of how often you read the Camera, whether it’s every day or just on occasion. As a panelist, you will periodically receive e-mail invitations to take online surveys. You decide how often you participate – respond to every survey or answer only when it’s convenient.

In addition to the sense of satisfaction you’ll get for being a vital part of your local paper, joining the reader panel could be lucrative. Every time you complete a questionnaire, you’ll earn another entry in our monthly drawing for a $50 Visa gift card.

We’ve recently reached out to the panel about how to improve local news coverage, the Business Plus section, the Science page, our Get Out feature and more. In the upcoming months, we’ll review the feedback we’ve received thus far and use it to make the Camera a better news source for you and your fellow readers. We could really use your input.
